33 year old female carer
Course Complete - Bachelor of Nursing
I formally studied classical ballet for 12 years and many other styles of dancing in addiction and on the side. I love arts and crafts, am a creative person and was always learning a new instrument. Oh and cooking and baking is a big pass time for me, so I am always happy to get the kids involved in anything like that too and not afraid to get messy! And cleaning/tidying isn’t an issue for me either.

Hello to all you lovely Families out there, my name is Alex. If I were to tell you a bit about myself I would describe myself as a gentle, loving, caring and creative person. I love to be around children, which I think was due to being the eldest in such a large family where I was very involved in raising and looking after all my little sisters and brothers. Education wise I have a bachelor in Division 1 Nursing where I specialized in Emergency/Critical Care Nursing. Whilst practicing as a nurse I was able to go back to university and start a 4-year Midwifery degree at ACU, though I have deferred for 2020/21 due to the obvious Covid 19 issues going on in the world at the moment. I have also studied an Infant/pediatric massage course intended for children with disabilities and mothers suffering postnatal depression that I completed through The Royal Women's Hospital in the hopes of one day being a maternal health nurse. Because of my Medical training I am educated, certified and am up to date in both adult and pediatric advanced life support, anaphylaxis training and have a current working with children’s check and police check. My start in childcare began whilst I was still at Uni studying my last year of my Nursing degree and for another 1 year after completing my nursing degree, I worked at the East Melbourne Child Care Co-Op Day Care Centre where I worked and rotated in all the rooms with children ranging from 5 months to 6 years old. And on two days of that week I worked one on one with special needs and disabled children to join the rest of the activities and children as much as was possible. And when my Nursing studies where completed I was asked if I would be willing to stay on and run my own class as the head career/teacher in the toddler’s room for another year. Through my time working in this role I was able to continue to learn and update my knowledge, skills and childhood development education by attending many professional education courses and programs run by The Lady Gowrie Learning Centre regarding various developmental topics on all ages of pre school children. And I have had the opportunity to have been working as a nanny for the last 5 years with various wonderful families in both long and short term positions and looking after multiple children from infants all the way to primary school age kids. I am also very happy to provide any documents or information you may like to see and provide referee documents and contacts.
Additional Fun Fact: Prior to starting my Nursing degree I lived in Vietnam and Thailand for 2 years teaching English to students aged 3 years to 18 years old in both one on one settings and in group classes and schools.
